Granola Update

4 Comments

Hello Again!  Happy Monday!!
I have posted about granola before.  I have been using the same recipe for quite a while, and although I love it, I have been feeling the need to experiment.  Last weekend, I took this recipe and ran with it. 
First, I melted down 1/2 a cup of maple syrup, 1/4 cup home made peanut butter, and 1/4 cup coconut oil.  
While it melted, I mixed together 1/2 cup of coconut, 4 cups of oats, LOTS of cinnamon, and a few pinches of salt. 
Soon, the first pot was all melted.  I added in about 1 1/2 t of vanilla extract.  
 I mixed it allllll together and spread it out onto a silicone baking mat. 
Then, I baked it at 350* until it was light brown.  
It was really good!  I love the maple/salt combo.  This recipe gave me the confidence to experiment a bit more with my granola!

John keeps granola at work with him to eat for breakfast.  Every morning I pack him up with some raw milk and fruit and he is is set!
